SPRINGHILL – In the pursuit to fund extra curricular music education, the Anne Murray Centre [AMC] is challenging the masses to unite.
The centre put forward a bid in the Aviva Community Fund, in hopes of winning the $150,000 it needs to buy instruments, renovate the centre’s basement and offer music education to youth. As of Monday, voting for the centre’s pitch was not going so well.
“We did not qualify for the semi-finals in the last round so we need your help,” AMC executive director Marcie Meekins said in a release Monday. “During the last round we had an average of 66 votes per day leaving us with just over 1,000 at the end of the round. Those ideas that advanced all had 15,000-plus votes.”
Hope is not lost, however. There are three opportunities to advance to the semi finals and Meekins is calling on the public to rally behind the centre in another push to advance in the contest.
